Dispatch from India


Before Christmas, my cousin, Kate Hovey, and her boyfriend popped to India and took just sickeningly beautiful photos. Here are some of my favorites. I want to go so badly (and/or paint my apartment peachy pink), it hurts!


Elephant topiaries and monkeys and pink sand (at the Presidential Palace in Delhi)!


It seems terrible to wear (or decorate with) anything but mixed plaids after seeing this man.

    Have you been? I think you'd love Delhi.
